Boy's and their Motorbikes 50th Birthday easel.

Hello everyone,

What a lovely sunny day, can we hope?  Today's card is number three of the four BOY cards I have to make this month. I don't mind this one though. It's plain, simple and to the point. It's for my bike mad Brother's 50th birthday. Eeek, I can't believe my kid brother is half a century old.

I used the  3rd anniversary CD  from MCS  to make this card. There are a couple of sections in this set that are ideal for men, this one's called 'The Finishing Line'. I'ts a standard easel card made from an A5 card blank. The backing paper is on the cd, but to make it more personal I tiled '50' all over it. The topper was mat and layered first onto deep blue mirri board, then onto black pearl card, to give added strength. The lettering was cut using my cricut, in the same blue mirri board and the sentiment was again mounted on blue mirri.

I wonder if he'll notice that even the bike number is '50'. That's quite straight forward to do in the MCS graphics program. A bit of black card candy and that's the front finished.

The verse is on the back of the card. I couldn't decide whether to put a slushy verse or a humerous verse. I went for humerous in the end. Hope he see's the funny side.

I am entering this card into the following challenge :-
